Attach a Route (map) when entering a 'Manual Entry'

It is really frustrating when a device destroys your data!!! In my case an 18 hour ride and nothing to show for it.

What do we do .. only solution at the moment is to add a Manual Entry.

Currently there is no image of the route taken when adding a 'Manual Entry'.

If we could import a route (gpx or  select one of 'My Routes') it would greatly enhance the entry.

Note: no time data would be available from the file ... that is expected.

  •  On Android: add manual activity: Add Route feature is available (assumes you've created the route before on Strava). Very useful.

    On Computer: add manual entry: no add route feature available

    ???????

    But hey, we did get a bunch of useless other features in the mean time

  • Uninstalling Strava until it has this. The manual mapping mode also isn't up to par.

  • So, They do it in Android 2 years ago then nothing. I'm a paid member and this sort of response is crap.

  • Is this feature updated on IOS or web yet?  Seems like an easy add that would help a lot of people with the app.  If not maybe i need to switch back to MapMyRide.

  • This feature has been requested for years but Strava have some strange reason for not adding it.  No body at Strava ever says why nor promises an update in the future.  You used to be able to do it in Android but I see that has now been removed as well so there is no way at all unless you have programming skills and a lot of time.   It cant be difficult to add it and if they did for paid members I would become one. Do you think Strava ever read these comments and requests?

  • The capacity to add a route to a manual upload used to be available on Android -- I've done it several times in the past. But now it seems to have been removed? Is this actually the case, or has it just been hidden during a redesign of the interface?

  • Angie Feret December 30, 2019 20:01 - I can also confirm that this works. It's long winded compared to what Strava should be offering as standard but it works at least !

  • Completely agree.

     

    There must be an ulterior reason why Strava won't allow this, and why they removed the function from their Android app. Given that this has been going on for at least 6 years now I doubt things are going to change any time soon... or is this available for paying members?

    I also used the advice of Angie Feret to add timestamp to my manually created route here: Add speed and time stamps to the file by uploading it here: https://gotoes.org/strava/Add_Timestamps_To_GPX.php

  • What is equally frustrating is the manual entries don't count towards any of the challenges.

  • I am waiting for this feature to be implemented to order my Strava jersey.

  • Please, please, please do this!  My "record" didn't take for Bay to Breakers and though I know most of the info, I would love to see a map, an account for the elevation and just the "proof" that I did it.  It seems like it should be an easy thing to do, at least just copy the route of a super popular race.

  • Come on Strava there seems to be plenty of users who would like to see this happen, including me!

  • Throwing my vote behind this feature too. Note that Strava already has these mechanisms in place, as you can upload a GPX file but if it doesn't have time data it will reject it.

  • Timothy T - completely agree with you. Seriously thinking about going elsewhere and advising my friends to do the same. Strava wont do it as it thinks it's bigger than what it is. There are plenty of other good route plotting sites out there. I'm off.

  • Martin, you wouldn't need a cell signal to record a ride on your cell phone. It uses the cells GPS so no need for the signal from the cell phones carrier.

  • Steve, I did not realize that my phone had a built in GPS chip. Unfortunately that doesn't change the fact that I cannot get the GPS feature on my phone to locate me when I ride out in the boonies (I've tried several times with no luck at this point). I would love to be able to log the workout manually and match it with a route.

  • Just use the route builder and exclude the data from any KOMs, challenges, etc.

  • I concur.  A route that I have taken that has been recorded before for some reason today decided it was only going to record half of the actual travelled route.  Oddly, the last half.  A simple (edit route) feature so I could manually plot the starting point up to where the data began actually recording would be fantastic.  Everyone understands errors can happen, but a simple feature to manually correct the map would be a good enough solution.

    Another even simpler addition would be to allow us to upload an image for a manually entered route.  That way we could manually plot the map, like you can with runningmap.com, snap a screen shot, and at least save an image of the route to go along with the manual entry.

  • I switched to strava from map my ride because my son convinced me it was better...he was wrong.  In map my ride, I can manually draw up a route and then log a workout including start and stop time and get basic calculated data such as average speed.  In this app, I can draw up a route, but I cannot enter data for a ride on the route in which I have no gps data.  I even tried exporting the route into a gpx file and then importing the route back into a manual entry but was denied because the imported route lacked speed information.  This is a terrible limitation and it will drive me back to map my ride.

  • We have enough people asking for this feature, but I don't see any comment from Strava. Is there any way to let them know what we think? This feature would make a big difference in the app.

  • The workarounds like creating a GPX file in another site and importing it will work but is more fiddly than it should need to be.

  • Don't waste your time guys. Clearly Strava aren't interested Not very professional at all, are they? I'm looking for other ways to upload onto other sites. As soon as I find something I'll let you know. in the meantime I'm going to use mapmyrun or some other rather than this uninterested website. Very disappointed in them.

  • Of all the things Strava could add, surely it can't be that difficult to have a 'completed' button on the route planner which turns it into an activity. I don't use my phone for internet stuff when I am on the move, would rather not spend money on it using GPS.

  • An even better feature would be to be able to enter several routes at the same time, and have them displayed on the map in different colors (Everytrails does that for instance).
    I often ride on routes that I don't know, following other's tracks. Sometimes, I link several of them. Sometimes I follow the tracks of past official events, and it's nice to have the 2011, 2012, and 2013 edition tracks displayed on my screen at the same time to see the differences and follow the one I want.
    And even more, an offline map function would be great too.

  • I was using MapMyRide but switched to Strava as I've heard good things and it seems to have a bigger user base....but without this feature I'm going back.  As others have said - there isn't much point to the very nicely designed Route Builder unless you can use it for activities as well.  I suppose there's some issue with not including the manually entered times in leaderboards, etc. but come on, Strava, at least give us a comment telling us whether you are working on this!

  • I agree with all of the above. Forgot to turn Location Services on and did the ride. Time logged so manually "added" the route, which gave me the distance with an estimated time (I guess based on previous rides). Imagine my surprise when I couldn't add the route to my ride like all the previous ones. Gutted. Perhaps there's just not enough call for this, or it's harder than we think OR, Strava thinks this would make a good Premium feature !!??

  • Like a lot of people here I also use the manual method of tracking my commute to work and would love to be able to attach my own routes.  I think I'll have another look at mapmyride and rejuvenate my old account there.....c'mon Strava, you know it makes sense!

  • This would be a great feature because when you run the same route regularly you don't need to rely on GPS data (which on my route often go wrong).  I can just pick a route and use my recorded time.  Easy.  Done.
